It was a remarkable turnaround for a club that won three-of-the-first-four MLS Cups after the league launched in 1996 but had fallen on tough times in recent years.

Manchester United are unbeaten in the Premier League ever since Jose Mourinho was sacked but the past two games have been a bit testing for the Red Devils.

Many of United's stars had feuded with the acerbic Mourinho and their performances dipped as a result. There are so many good players [in the United team] - [Paul] Pogba, [Marcus] Rashford, so many.

United have the option to extend the new deal by a further year if they wish.

Rashford scored the first goal of the Solskjaer reign against Cardiff, while Lingard struck twice in that 5-1 rout.

Former England captain Wayne Rooney, who helped revitalise one of Major League Soccer's original superpowers when he joined D.C. United past year, still feels he possesses the quality to compete in the Premier League.

Martial recently signed a new deal at the club, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2024.

United are expected to make a decision on their manager at the end of the season.

If Solskjaer can lead United to silverware and finish in the top four it might be hard for the Glazer family and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to ignore his credentials to land the manager's post on a permanent basis.

Currently, both Tottenham and Chelsea are suffering from poor form.

Former Everton striker Wayne Rooney believes he could still do a job in the Premier League, according to CNN Sport.

"At the moment he deserves it".

They report that the former England captain - who now plays for DC United in MLS - feels he still has enough quality to shine in the top flight.

"Now he has got this freedom to play with, I think we are beginning to see the real Paul Pogba play". He was a fantastic player.
